Cultivating a Strong Brand Reputation Online?

A strong reputation is essential to the survival of your brand.  But it’s not quite as simple as just coming up with a phenomenal tag line, some really beautiful graphics, or an incredibly memorable logo.  Those elements are all important, and helpful, too – but they’re not what lies at the core of the issue. The online community is now more essential than ever when it comes to recruiting consumers. Therefore, making sure that you have a positive online brand reputation is more essential than ever.

The core of your brand’s reputation is the level of quality that it carries. This doesn’t only refer to the actual quality of your products, but also the quality of the service that your customers and those who interact with your brand receive. It’s like if you’re in a restaurant, and you receive the wrong order. If you have a waiter or waitress who quickly acknowledges that you’re unhappy, asks you what they can do to resolve the situation, and swiftly replaces your dish, you’re more likely to recommend the restaurant than you would be if you’d had the same situation and a waiter or waitress didn’t acknowledge your displeasure. High quality service is essential in cultivating a strong brand reputation. This includes ease of use. Is your website easy to use? Does it load well on mobile phones? The key is to be constantly, and easily accessible.

Another vital component is cultivating a strong relationship with brand ambassadors. The stronger your brand is, the stronger your customer loyalty will be.  Brand ambassadors champion the work and products of your brand, and play a vital role in recommending you to other potential customers.  Word of mouth, despite all of our recent technological advancements, is still one of the most powerful influencers when it comes to consumers.

So what does this mean for building your brands’ reputation online? It means that you’ve got to know where to find your audience, how to interact with them in a positive way, and how to provide them with exactly what they need to know.

This is where social media comes in. With more users than ever before on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (to name a few), utilizing social media allows for you to have direct access to an enormous online community. Social media also allows you to directly interact with customers on a personal level, by immediately responding to queries or issues. Personally responding to queries sets a company apart, and provides consumers with a positive and memorable incident involving your brand to recall to others.
